I typically hit the head first thing every morning, but I've never considered my bowels to be irritable.

If you're worried about crapping your pants while on the Island, you most likely won't go for at least a week, then you'll be regular.

Regardless of what doctors say, I've got to go in the morning, whether a bathroom is around or not. I realize this may not be possible in boot camp, and disqualification may not be far off... but I'm still going to try until I get DQ'd officially.

Instead of a "self diagnosis" and then saying to the doctor........"hey doc, I have IBS and I need some medication for it." I'm very surprised that he just took your word and gave you what you wanted. Shame on the doctor......
Why don't you go back to your family doctor and have him run some tests to see if you actually have IBS. Who knows, maybe you're lactose and intolerant and dairy products are bothering you.

This reminds me of this kid in bootcamp named Shawgo -- our DI's called him sha-lay-go. I dunno.
Any way, shawgo was a turd -- got sling palsey at the range, could only do a couple of pullups - well into bootcamp, always a run drop -- the whole nine yards. Sheet bird.
But the kid was an intell Marine, so I guess they bend the rules for them -- cause this kid should have, and would have never left that Island with an EGA if he was a Grunt.
Shawgo went to the DI's one day about going to sickcall because he was constipated. No sheet.
So, after our DI's tried to loosen him up with a little quarterdeck action -- they sent him to sick call.
A little later he comes back, and we had just returned from chow, we were out front of 2nd BN barracks smoking and joking.
The DI's see shawgo return and they call him up in front of the platoon. Shawgo has returned from sick call with a full bottle of Metamucil. The DI takes the Metamucil from shawgo, and reads the Doc's instructions out loud, "Take one tablespoon with a canteen of water".
So, the DI "asks" shawgo to pull out his canteen and open it. Then the DI opens the Metamucil container, peels off the safety lid, and tells shawgo to tilt his head back. LOL
Then he tells shawgo to open wide.
He poured the Metimucil in him until it was coming out of his mouth. Then he told him to swallow, and then he told him to drink the whole canteen. He did this again with another canteen and another tilt of the head. I'm thinking 3/4 of the Metamucil was used right there.
Then, he tells shawgo to fall in, and we went about our business.
Throughout the day, our DI's would ask shawgo if he had to take a dump.
And shawgo would sound off, "Sir, No, Sir" -- all loud and motivated.
Until around 1600.
At that point we were getting ready for evening chow, so they asked shawgo if he had to go take a dump yet -- and he sounded off "SIR, YES, SIR".
So they marched us across the quarterdeck and we had chow. LOL
We get back from chow, and at this point shawgo is definitely turning colors, I'd say he was green-ish. The DI's drive us in front of the barracks and they call shawgo upfront.
They ask him, again, if he has to go take a dump?
Now he's looking kinda purple-ish and he sounds off, "SIR, YES, SIR".
So they say, okay, shawgo head upstairs and take care of your business.
We were on the third floor.
The kid took off faster than anything we ever saw from him.......
He gets about 3/4 of the way to our barracks and they call him back.
LOLOLOLOLOL -- I'm dying as i type this.
The kid comes back. LOLOLOL
They mess with him a little, make him drink from his canteen. And then they send him upstairs.
About halfway up the stairs the kid just stopped running.
He had a massive liquified explosion of the rectum, in his draws, on the stairs.
Man, I miss that place.

That's hilarious Wookie.
Adema, as long as you haven't been diagnosed and want to carry on with boot camp with the risk ending up like "Shawgo".. then sign the contract and go to boot camp.
I actually had a friend in boot camp that said he had IBS but wasn't actually diagnosed with it and he did just fine.. Lucky for him it didn't start acting up until we were almost done when they allowed us to make sit down head calls if it was an emergency... If it were to happen in the start of training.. he most likely would have had to hold it or... end up like Shawgo. I highly doubt you'll be allowed to take your medicines since you're not diagnosed with it so you'll just have to be without that.
